Closure of the Church is a file in Resident Evil 4. It is referred to as "Blockade on the church" (教会の封鎖 Kyōkai no fūsa?) in the original script.


The note can be found on a wooden table in a shack at the start of Chapter 1-3. The shack is built along a wooden bridge behind the Los Iluminados cult's church.[1]


Regarding the two fugitives, the apprehension of Luis is our top priority; the American agent a distant second.

What Luis stole from us is far more important than the girl.

Unless we get it back, the girl will become useless to us. We must get it back to execute our plan to the end.

If it gets in the wrong hands, the world would become a totally different place than what Lord Saddler has envisioned.

At all costs, we mustn't let that happen.

Nevertheless, we're not letting go of the girl. To ensure that the agent does not get to her, I have locked the church door where the girl is being held.

Anyone who needs access to the church must first get approval by Lord Saddler.

There is a key beyond the lake, but it should be safe now that the "Del Lago" has been awakened by our Lord. No one will get across the lake alive.

Plus, our same blood courses through the agent's veins. It'll be just a matter of time before he joins us. Once he does, there will be nobody else left that will come looking for the girl.

脱走した2人に関しては、 合衆国のエージェントよりもルイスを捕まえる事を優先せよ。やつの持ち出した物は、 あの娘よりも重要だ。例え大統領の娘を利用できても、 あれが無ければ計画を最後までやり抜く事は不可能だ。

それにもしも、 あれが他の組織に渡る事にでもなれば、 サドラー様の理念とは違った世界が生まれる事になる。それだけは避けねばならん。

しかしもちろん、 あの娘も手放すつもりはない。

あのエージェントが接触できぬよう、 しばらくの間、 娘を閉じ込めた教会は封鎖する。出入りに必要な“丸い紋章”は私が直接管理するので、 立ち入る用件のある者は、 サドラー様の許可を得よ。

“丸い紋章”に関しては、 湖を越えた先の例の場所にも同じ物があるが、 サドラー様によって「デルラゴ」の封印が解かれた以上、 よそ者の手には渡るまい。

それに、 あのエージェントには、 すでに我々の血が混じっている。


そうなれば、 もうあの娘を助け出そうとする者はいなくなる・・・


The note appears to be another update from Bitores Mendez. The note points Leon to search around the lake for the key to the church.
